Federal accident investigators were weighing a recommendation that states reduce their threshold for drunken driving from the current .08 blood alcohol content to .05, a standard that has been shown to substantially reduce highway deaths in other countries.  

The lower threshold was one of a series of recommendations aimed at reducing drunken driving made by the National Transportation Safety Board's staff in a report presented at a meeting of the board.

New approaches are needed to combat drunken driving, which claims the lives of more than a third of the people killed each year on U.S highways - a level of carnage that that has remained stubbornly consistent for the past decade and a half, the board said.

Do you support a lower DUI limit?  Or is .08 good enough?
